Meet Heather, a beautiful and sweet two-year-old blue Pit mix, who is on the petite side at only 45 lbs. Poor Heather got off to a rough start in life. She almost died of pneumonia at the shelter after being brought in as a stray. Lucky for Heather, a rescuer recognized her potential and took her home, where she endured twice a day breathing treatments -- always smiling and giving kisses despite her discomfort.
After recovering, Heather spent a week with an awesome trainer to learn perfect manners because she didn't have a lot of experience with other dogs -- but she knew she liked them. She also loves people and kids and even cats. Heather is spayed, house-broken, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all her shots. She's also good on a leash and in a car.
